Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Reese Witherspoon reprises her role as pink-loving, naturally blonde Harvard Law School graduate Elle Woods. This time she's a lawyer-in-pink out to stop animal testing in the cosmetic industry and free her beloved Chihuahua's mother from a laboratory. So, she's off to Washington, D.C., where she meets a sorority sister who's a senator (Sally Field) and a friendly doorman (Bob Newhart) who knows everything about how the political system works. Also with Luke Wilson and Regina King. Directed by Charles Herman-Wurmfeld. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman kiss a few times, and a woman kisses a man and they both fall onto the floor. We see a photo of a man and a woman kissing. A group of people dance with movements that resemble those of dogs: they thrust their hips, pant, wag their hips, lift their legs, lick at each other, and rub themselves on each other's legs. Women wear tight-fitting and short outfits throughout the movie revealing cleavage, bare, shoulders, and bare legs, and we see a man dressed as a woman. Innuendo includes: A woman says "I did the bend and snap naked," a character is portrayed as being homosexual, a man accuses a woman of performing oral sex on a man to get what she wants, a woman talks about a "tongue, no tongue policy" at a kissing booth, and a woman talks about two dogs having sex and that they are gay (we see them later lying together and one is dressed in studded leather).

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - We see a dog in a Plexiglas containment field, in a laboratory, apparently undergoing some kind of test. A dog bites a sandwich and a man takes a bite after him.

PROFANITY 3 - 1 scatological term, 2 anatomical terms, 5 mild obscenities, 12 religious exclamations, 1 derogatory term for homosexuals. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Politics, governmental procedures, Washington deals and secrets, credibility, blackmail, homosexuality, wedding planning, goals, principles.

MESSAGE - People can make a difference. Trust your own voice. Do not judge by appearances.

Special Keywords: S3 - V1 - P3 - MPAAPG-13

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
